A Combination of Roads for 600 Average milesMG ZR
I haven't driven many miles with these yet but so far i'm reasonably impressed with them. I've gone from Uniroyal Rainsport 2's (which i still have on another set of alloys) as i wanted a smoother ride over the amazingly sporty Rainsport 2's.
These Centos' are unbelievably quite.
It's a very smooth ride even in a MG ZR 160.
I'm not 100% confident of them in the wet (again, my only comparison are the rainsport 2's): i think there straight line characteristics are very good but i'm not yet so sure about cornering/handling characteristics. BUT, i need to do more miles.
So far i would say these are worth a punt: vredestein have a good reputation and this is a flagship product for them and so far i can see why. It's not, in my opinion, a sports tyre, more a saloon executive tyre. I could easily see these on Mercs & BMW's with lots of straight line speed, smooth cornering but not out & out sports cornering & aggressive driving. A pleasant compromise between smoothness & quite versus grip & handling (not that i've had a problem with either).
Will post more feedback after a few more thousand miles. Costs ?95 a corner.
